It’s a minor annoyance that should be easily dealt with.  I should probably learn enough about Gtk3 to fix it myself, but if I start playing around with that I won’t get any of the things I should be doing done.  Also, note that I’m using the X Window version, not the Quartz version.  The Quartz version may be quite different (I’m not sure if it’s even being built yet).


I just built quartz on my laptop on the way over from the US last week and pushed the changes. 

There's a pango bug, 782393, about drawing double-size with CoreText on a Retina screen; it was revealed by a change to Gtk that's mentioned in the first note on the bug. I've written a patch which is in Gtk-OSX but it's waiting for Bedhad to approve it before I can push it to Pango.

I don't know if the MacPorts X-build uses the CoreText or FontConfig backend for Pango, but if it uses CoreText it might be your problem.
